East of Savannah

P. T. Bridgeport

About the Book

Savannah is a port, but the delta of the Savannah River separates the port from the sea.

Eighteen miles of beaches, islands, tidal marshes, and waterways stretch between the city and the ocean. Visitors to Savannah barely notice that land, but it is diverse and frequently beautiful. The photographs in these pages capture the moods, scenery, and some of the residents.

This is the city and delta in their most unexpected moments, largely unseen and frequently deserving observation.
